#133 closed enhancement (fixed)

Flight Comparison

Reported by: danielvelezbravo@… Owned by: somebody
Priority: trivial Milestone:
Component: FsComp Version: 1.2.6
Keywords: track animation function Cc:


It would be great to have the ability to see at least two flights side by side on the map display. That seems to work on FSFlight but it has one minor problem. When you move the mouse around the screen map you can see that the software would scroll to the closest tracklog point and give you information about it. The problem comes when you have two tracks on the display, as the closest point to the mouse is selected for both tracks, regardless of the time. It would be really nice if there was a main track and a secondary or comparison track, so once you put your mouse over some trackpoint on the main track, it shows the corresponding trackpoint on the other track on a "time" basis, meaning that you can actually see where was the other pilot when the main pilot was at some point.

I´m not sure if I was clear enough, but my intend is to use the simpler 2d track display to make a rought comparison of the performances on two diferent pilots, and maybe to use it to check for specific reports. Let´s say one pilot says that the other pilot entered the cloud near the second turnpoint... it would be really nice to see if the two pilots were actually together on the second turnpoint before further analisis. Also it would be nice for the leading coeficient questions...

In conclusion, it would be really nice to have something like a multiple track animation function. (to check the final glide race to goal, or the goal crossing...).

The option for that is there already (in FsFlight). Go on the Tools > Options menuitem and you'll see ...
